1. Choose Furniture Built to Withstand Playtime

When selecting furniture for a playroom, durability takes center stage. Active and playful kids need furniture that can keep up with their boundless energy. For furniture that stands the test of time, solid wood is your best friend. Its sturdiness ensures that it will endure years of play while providing a touch of natural beauty.

Whether you're looking for a white dresser, black nightstand, or a natural wood desk, solid wood provides the backbone for a playroom that grows as they do. Its durability guarantees that it will remain a reliable and sturdy companion throughout their childhood, creating a space that is both functional and beautiful.

2. Have Lots of Storage for Toys, Books, and More

A clean playroom is a happy playroom, and clever storage solutions are key to maintaining a clutter-free space. If your kid’s playroom is part of their bedroom, consider incorporating a bunk bed with stairs or a loft bed with stairs, which integrate three side cubbies to neatly store and display their favorite toys, books, and knick-knacks.

Besides beds with storage, dressers, nightstands and bookcases ensure that all your kid’s belongings have their own rightful place. To keep the playroom neat and tidy, try labeling or color-coding bins, drawers, and shelves to ease kids into cleaning up after themselves. Also, make use of vertical space in the room by using a tall dresser that maximizes floor space or installing hooks for easy access to backpacks and coats.

3. Personalize With Playful Décor

Infuse your kid’s unique personality into their playroom to create a space that resonates with their interests and passions. Showcase their artwork proudly on the wall to add a fun, personalized touch that celebrates their creativity and individuality and boosts their confidence.

For a playroom in a kid’s bedroom, consider adding a loft bed with curtain to not only add some color but create an underbed fort where they’ll love to spend time with their friends. You can also consider unique finish colors for their furniture, like blue, to make your kid’s room uniquely their own.

4. Turn Playtime Up a Notch with a Slide

Who says the playground has to stay outside? By adding a bunk bed with slide or loft bed with slide, you can bring the excitement indoors. Sliding down from their bed becomes a thrilling adventure, and at Max & Lily, our Easy Slides are designed with safety as the top priority. Every Easy Slide has hand cutouts for extra safety, and its gentle curve ensures a soft landing every time. Watch your kids' faces light up as they experience the joy of a playground right in their playroom. By adding a slide to their playroom, joy becomes part of your kid’s everyday routine.

5. Fuel Creativity with a Corner Desk for Crafts

Beyond play, a playroom should also boost your child's creativity and learning. Including a desk within the playroom offers a dedicated area for crafting, drawing and engaging in imaginative adventures. An L-shaped desk is the perfect choice, maximizing play space while adding a place for your kid to use their imagination and create their own artistic masterpieces. Plus, these desks can incorporate extra storage with built-in shelving. You can also use this space to read books or do other activities together. Include a bulletin board or whiteboard so that your child has an area to display their work or write out ideas and stories they come up with.


Creating a playroom that is both enchanting and practical might feel like a daunting task, but with these five tips, you're well on your way to crafting a space that is uniquely theirs—and one they'll adore. Your kiddo will thank you for creating a space where they feel free to explore, play, learn, and create. By choosing durable furniture, incorporating ample storage, adding personal touches, introducing elements of fun like a slide, and fostering creativity with a dedicated craft corner, you'll create a playroom that captivates your child's imagination while also standing up to their energy.
